Framer Framed organises a tour through the archive of the International Institute of Social History in Amsterdam, in conjunction with our current exhibition Iran’s Women’s Movement: On the Archive of Sadiqe Dowlatabadi. In the exhibition, curator and artist Azadeh Fatehrad reflects on the personal archive of Sadiqe Dowlatabadi (1882-1961), one of the pioneers of the women’s movement in Iran. IISH houses Dowlatabadi’s and was acquired by professor Touraj Atabaki. In the guided tour professor Atabaki himself will discuss the specific archive and the IISH.
